DISTRICT ATTORNEY Seth Williams' recent 45-pound weight loss is nothing short of remarkable. "There's no real secret" to losing weight, he said. But we wondered how he did it. Here are some of his strategies:

* Beat night-time cravings with mixed nuts instead of carb-loaded snacks.

* Load up on water to help you feel full while eating less.

* Reduce carbohydrates.

* Consume less sugar.

* Work out regularly.

* Make a quick, high-energy lunch out of rotisserie chicken.
